Clever Vanguard trick makes getting Atomic camo much easier

Wonder Weapons have always been a part of Call of Duty Zombies since its inception and Vanguard has had fans confused as to whether or not the game has one hidden somewhere. We’ll answer that question for you today.

Vanguard Zombies launched to a pretty lukewarm reception with fans citing an “embarrassing” lack of content and underdeveloped elements as a big part of this. We ourselves gave the Zombies launch content a 4/10 in our extensive Vanguard Zombies review.

It’s missing a ton of features at launch that previous Call of Duty games have had, most recently Black Ops Cold War.

But one of the biggest mysteries about Vanguard has been the question of Wonder Weapons. It’s unclear to many fans if Der Anfang has any Wonder Weapons, and we’ll run through this and give you a definitive answer today.

Does Vanguard have a Ray Gun or any other Wonder Weapon?

Sadly, Call of Duty: Vanguard does not have any Wonder Weapons at present, not even the age-old CoD Ray Gun.

Wall buys, turning the power on, Pack-A-Punch camos, and Wonder Weapons are some of the many features absent at launch compared to Black Ops Cold War’s launch map – Die Maschine.

But the biggest absence is quite comfortably the Ray Gun, meaning you’ll have to contend with the game’s regular arsenal of weapons and goodies for the time being.

Why doesn’t Vanguard have any Wonder Weapons?

Treyarch, unfortunately, hasn’t confirmed why this is the case, and it’s proved to be a sour point for many long-term Zombies fans.

Fans have speculated that the workload has become too much for Treyarch with the developer having to juggle the full development and maintenance of Black Ops Cold War, releasing the final Zombies map – Forsaken – so close to Vanguard’s launch, and having to make entirely new content for Vanguard too.

A developer can only balance so many projects, and inevitably things will be forgotten about and ideas will fall through the cracks.

Will Vanguard get any Wonder Weapons in future?

Vanguard and Warzone Season 1 is live, but there is still no sign of a Wonder Weapon. The official roadmap lists more content coming in the mid-season update. At the time of writing, we’ve no idea what this content actually is, and if it will finally bring any sort of Wonder Weapon to Vanguard.

At the very least, we imagine that fans will be crying out for a Ray Gun, and maybe one other special Wonder Weapon tied to Der Anfang.

Once we know more concrete facts about Treyarch’s plans, we’ll be sure to update this guide with more information regarding Vanguard Zombies Wonder Weapons.
